Carlo Blanket a Chunky Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

The Carlo is a quick and chunky crochet blanket pattern. Super bulky yarn means this blanket crochets up fast. The free pattern includes multiple sizes so you can crochet a throw, lapghan or larger blanket.

Quick and chunky, the Carlo Baby Blanket is a cozy blanket crochet pattern. The simple stitches and easy repeats make working up this blanket a great way to keep hands busy while watching t.v. or listening to your book.

The texture on this blanket is divine. And it’s such a simple technique – just alternating stitches in the back loop and front loop.

I love the super bulky yarn for blankets. It works up quick and it’s cozy. Plus if you’re using it on the floor to lay a little one on, then it’s thicker and makes for better padding!

For this blanket, I use a regular single crochet on the first few rows, the first and last stitches and the last few rows to form a subtle border.
